Well, it's not listed as supported at all in our lists. I'll cc this
mail to the maintainer of the microtek2 backend: Karsten, should that
scanner be added to the microtek2 backend (at least as "minimal

If you don't get answers on this list, you can also try to contact the
maintainer of the microtek2 backend directly: Karsten Festag

I can't speak about that specific scanner but I know about scanners
that are named "1200" and their real resolution is 600 dpi. So it may
be just marketing.

That's strange. XSane itsself doesn't know anything about that
scanner. The backend (microtek2) does all the low-level work. So maybe
the backend version also changed?

That's an xsane issue. I haven't seen it happeneing here, however. Ask
Oliver Rauch <Oliver.Rauch@Rauch-domain.de> if you don't get answers

With my window mangaer (enlightenment) I can move such windows by
pressing ALT + left mouse button anywhere in the window.
